My fourth illustration for Tor.com's many wonderful short stories! This one is based on author Genevieve Valentine's "La Beaute Sans Vertu," a narrative about fashion in the future and the Princess of Rose & Diamonds. Thank you to the art director, Irene Gallo, for the opportunity! (original available for purchase, contact me at mail@mynameistran.com)

Short story to be published soon on Tor.com.

The eyes are amazing ,The effect of the water touching the skin are something to behold. I also Enjoy the shape and placement of the nose.

its the 5th ophelila painting i've seen this week
not saying its not a good painting but its really hard for me to be moved when people keep painting the same scene over and over with different ladies and colors

But she is a classic and beautiful woman to draw and it doesn't matter how many times you draw something because everything is already done, you just made it yours
